I feel bad for whoever it was that traded in their pristine copy of Eternal Darkness, complete with manual and original box, at the local GameStop. Enjoy your 3DS or whatever, dude. I'll give this game a good home.
Mining, Herbing, and arcaeology now give you XP. This is a good incentive to gather as you level (in addition to the gold you make). Has there been any news or rumors about getting XP from fishing? As it is now, I never level fishing because there's no point in it as I already have a lvl 525 fishing toon. Why would I level it on all my characters? But if it earned XP....that would be a great incentive to keep fishing leveled throughout the 1-85 process.
There's been no indication from Blizzard that fishing will award experience at any point in the future, but it also didn't say right out that we'd be getting it from mining and the other gathering professions until it actually happened, so maybe there's still hope.
